“Mahh..”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

Lucky the exhibitors were there to add variety. The best thing about Floriade was the food and sculptures and vendors. I just feel way too many of the 3 main varieties of Flowers. Tulips,violas and petunias. Loved the community involvement are and art but I went to see the flowers.

“Floriade Canberra”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

Worth the drive to Canberra for the day. Beautiful gardens. I recommend a ride on the ferris wheel to see the gardens from the top.

“great night in Canberra”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

I went to Floriade both during the day and the night (Nightfest) and it's not too much!


I think paying 25$ for the evening is worth it as you have singers, actors and different activities during the evening on top of nice lights on the flowers! Very romantic

There are some interactive places like an area where you could change the lights on the flowers yourself to see the difference. It was very nice

“Very colorful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

This has got to be one of the most beautiful floral shows I've been to, with a wide variety of flowers arranged in a splash of color and nice layouts, including one based on the master plan of Canberra and another following the WiFi logo, for instance. There was also a large Ferris wheel and inflatable slide for the little ones, as well as various stalls selling food + drink all over the place.

Best of all is that the attraction is a freebie, with the only payment made for parking (pay-and-display system) and F&B!
